It's been awhile since I have done a personal post so bear with me.
I have been blessed to have been able to travel all around the country these past couple of months, some for work and some for leisure. It's been great making new friends in all these different places. I'm so happy to have met you all.
This monday, I am moving to Dallas Fort Worth, Texas to start a new chapter in my life. I'm going to be attending the School of Music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It is a two year masters program. I'm going to be majoring in Vocal Performance because singing is something that has always been in my life. I have never been trained in it, and I desire to get some formal training.
It didn't really hit me until this week that I was leaving since I'm packing and trying to sort out everything. I have mixed feelings. On one hand, I'm really excited to go to Seminary, to make new friends and to learn about music and theology. On the other hand, I'm a bit sad because I was actually taking a liking to Columbus, especially after graduating college. The people here and my church community are amazing and I feel as if I'm leaving my family. Just today at church, I was reminiscing with a good friend of mine John about the first day I came to 4C and how things were much more simple back then. Good times.
I know seminary is where God wants me and what God has called me to at this moment, so that is where I'm going!
With this massive change, I decided that the website needs a change also. So with the help of my good friend Kevan, I have a new look! It's totally different from the original and I'm still trying to sort things out and make it look like I want it to. It's updated with new photographs and new videos of my work.
In terms of photography, all of it is kind of up in the air. Since I'm moving, I kind of lose my "networks". If people want to fly me out to do their weddings, I'd be more than willing to do so. I don't know how much wedding photography I will be doing but I'm not worried. I know I'm called to use my creativity in some form or another. Things might start shifting to more personal work or I might be doing different projects. Who knows!? I still have 4 wedding highlights to post so keep an eye out for them.
I hate saying good bye...and I'm terrible at them, but to all my friends in Columbus, farewell? You all have played an important part in shaping who I am as a person. I'm very grateful for you all letting me be a part of your lives.
It has been awhile since I have posted. I have been very busy finishing up my undergrad at OSU. I'm graduating this quarter and have been working on my final projects. Anyways. I have added a new thing to my services/brand: personal branded dvd's/cases! Instead of giving clients just a regular old dvd. I wanted to give them something more personalized and has a bit of VHP within it.
Thought I would just update you on what has been happening this summer so far. I have gotten into a bit of a routine. Basically my schedule monday through friday is like this:
9:30 - 11:18: Class at OSU. I'm taking history 151. It's the history on the americas. It's interesting because I'm learning new things about things I am familiar with. But it's just constant lecture and a lot of notes. And it also has a lot of reading =/
Then I eat lunch somewhere, sometimes I'll visit chris at bento and chill for a bit before heading to my photo internship.
I either go to my internship at 12 or 1 depending on if there is a shoot that day.
1:00 - 5:00: Internship. At the internship I usually have a couple of projects I work on. If there are shoots, then I assist on them by holding reflectors or set up equipment.
Then after work, I go home and change. Then I just go hang out with friends or whatever.
Last week, I have been over to A's house to work on her bathroom. We took off the wallpaper and then painted the walls and ceilings. If you have been following my vlogs, www.youtube.com/victorhuang20 then you will see the color and stuff. It's been an interesting but fun experience.
So that's my schedule for a month. School, work, play. It's not as stressful because I'm taking one class. It's nice. It's been a fun summer for far. Busy but fun!
A couple of days' ago, I had a little info session at my house with my friends. A lot of them recently just got dslr's and have not clue what the cameras do. So I went through the basics: aperture, shutter speed, iso. It was fun. I did a little shoot to demonstrate some off camera lighting and things like that. Here is a photograph of my friend chris. Yes, you can see the light in the background and it isn't the best composed image, but I was just showing some lighting.
Alright, that's it for now, if you want to see more of my life, then watch my video logs at www.youtube.com/victorhuang20
I just wanted to introduce my friend Boris here. He is my roommate and ladies, he is single! so watch out! I met him while I was at costco. I randomly bumped into him and we hit it off, hung out a couple of times and got to know each other pretty well. Now he's my roommate.
(for the ladies) Here is some information you might want to know. He's really messy! Every time I come home, my room is a mess! He never cleans after himself and is really lazy! He likes to sit there and watch TV all day. But other than that he is a really cool dude. He's a big softie, hah.
